Review: Allied Coastal Forces of WWII, Volume 1: Farimile Marine Company Designs and US Submarine Chasers

User Review  - Edward - Goodreads

More of a detailed reference for modellers, rather than someone seriously interested in the topic, but contains a passable overview of what is after a rather obscure subsector of WWII history. Read full review
